Council is responsible for ensuring that the GOsC fulfils its statutory objectives.

It sets the strategic direction for the organisation and oversees the implementation of that strategy. The detailed role of Council is set out in the Governance Handbook.

Council is made up of five lay members and five osteopath members, all appointed by the Privy Council. For further information about the appointment process see the Appointments page.
